A brief promo for a 1957 summer TV series called "The Big Moment". I uploaded this promo as MattTheSaiyan to YouTube, and pretty much nobody viewed it, and now it is on here. Was this show entertaining? Do any episodes survive? It couldn't have been worse than some of the absolute garbage that has made it to DVD (if I'm offending fans of "The Brady Bunch Hour" and "Curry and Chips", I'm not offending many people).

Four television commercials featuring popular actress Teri Garr. The first three are from the ealy '70s before she became a star. The last one is from the mid-'90s. Although Garr came to resent her wholesome housewife image, it certainly helped pay the bills until she went on to feature films -- where she played mostly housewives. These are for: MJB Coffee (partial), Glade air freshener, and a 1970 Safeguard ad that also includes a pre-mustache Tom Selleck and Penny Marshall.

Introducing the 1967 Dodge Dart GT, a sleek compact convertible. Amazing how sporty and cool this looked back in the '60s. Sadly, by the '70s just about everything cool from the '60s was revamped and ruined. In 1973 my parents bought a new Dart, and it was the most boring conservative car imaginable. Thank you, Chrysler motors. Pamela Austin, the perky spokesperson, was the "Dodge Rebellion Gal" in over a dozen television ads from 1966 and 1967. The campaign had a faint...

Some fondly remembered TV ads, mostly for boy's toys. Slinky (with its catchy jingle), Marx action playsets (Army men, knights, Fort Apache, etc.), animated Jonny Quest spot for P.F. Flyers sneakers (was always curious about that mysterious "magic wedge"), Hot Wheels, G.I. Joe Navy Sea Sled, Jiffy-Pop, Cracker Jacks (incredibly popular ad with Jack Gilford in a train's sleeper car). Finally, we close out the decade with two "Adventure Team" G.I. Joe ads, circa 1970...

More product ads from sponsors of the 1965-1966 season of ABC's "Honey West" series. These are: Sucrets, Carnation Instant Breakfast, Coffee-Mate creamer, Cover Girl, Sylvania flash cubes, and cigarette ads for Pall Mall and Tareyton. The Pall Mall ad is the most interesting for its blatant snob appeal. A group of elite, rich, white people take a break from their fancy hobby (re-enacting a Revolutionary War battle) for a cigarette. But only the highest quality smoke will do.

Here's a collection of NBC promos which aired between 1992 and 1993. Given the turnaround time on the production of television shows and the fact that network TV promos are ephemeral, there's little likelihood that these spots were every copyrighted, although the programs themselves were. For a portion of the video the sound drops out - sorry, there was little I could do about it.0:00 The Powers That Be0:35 Hot Country Nights0:45 The Fresh Prince/Blossom Hour1:06 Mann & Machine1:20...

Five product ads, a network promo, and a PSA. All of these ran during the 1965-1966 season of ABC's "Honey West". Sponsors: Hunt's Catsup, Wesson oil, Maybelline (remember "Mabelline eyes"?), and Wilkinson razor blades. Promo for "The FBI" series features Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as "Lou Erskine" (TV's first hero with a Jewish name) and glimpses of guest villains Robert Duvall and Ted Knight.

A short string of vintage television ads: Superman star George Reeves for Frosted Flakes (1950s), three for Batman -- the last one introduces Yvonne Craig as Batgirl (Holy femininity!). A few fragments that show the influence of the '60s spy craze: Bond bread, 007 cologne, "Odd Job" for Vicks Formula. Finally, Nancy Sinatra for RC Cola when they sponsored her 1967 "Movin' with Nancy" special. Topics: tv, television, advertising, 1960s, promos, spies, James Bond, ads
(Public domain clips) From 1963: end of "Channing" (w/Shatner) leads into Heinz Ketchup ad, Channing preview (with Suzanne Pleshette), sponsor bits, ABC Thursday promos: The Flintstones, The Donna Reed Show, and My Three Sons. Enjoy. Origin: I have a complete broadcast copy of one episode of "Channing" with the original 1963 commercials so, these ads can be seen in context.
